Trump 'not even a little bit' anxious about impeachment

Trump 'not even a little bit' anxious about impeachment

In his first interview since the release of the redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report, Sen.

However, the report outlined multiple instances where Trump tried to thwart Mueller's probe.

The subpoena angered Republicans even as it functioned as a reassurance to impatient Democrats.

Mueller decided he couldn't charge Trump with a crime, saying "in effect, if there's going to be any accountability, that accountability has to come from the Congress", Warren said.

Trump himself insisted he wasn't anxious.

But Speaker Nancy Pelosi sought Monday evening to rein in her Democrats on talk of impeaching Trump, reminding them the president can be investigated without drafting articles of impeachment.

While a handful of mostly backbenchers have kept beating the impeachment drum, it hadn't really filtered up into the ranks of top leaders and presidential candidates. Lindsey Graham has challenged Democrats to work up the courage and go for the impeachment, while the Democratic leadership warned against rushing in. "I don't think there's a basis for doing that right now", he told CBS in mid-October. New Jersey also elected four Democrat representatives to the House, leaving Chris Smith as the only Republican in the state congressional delegation.

"The impeachment proceedings are up to the House".

Garber said disputes between the White House and Congress over documents are often resolved through negotiation, rather than lawsuits, and that a compromise was still possible.

New IRA admits responsibility for killing Northern Ireland journalist Lyra McKee
McKee was writing a book on the disappearance of young people during three decades of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland. A 57-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the killing of the journalist Lyra McKee in Derry last Thursday.

McGahn was a vital witness for Mueller, recounting the president's outrage over the investigation and his efforts to curtail it.

The Democratic base feels righteously peeved about what they see in the Mueller report and in Attorney-General William Barr's questionable actions in releasing it. "Don't tell me there's not enough to debate impeaching the President", Moulton said, accusing Trump of obstructing justice, violating campaign finance laws and profiting from office, in violation of the constitution's emoluments clause.

"McGahn was perturbed by the call and did not intend to act on the request", the report says. "Whether now indictable or not, it is clear that the President has, at a minimum, engaged in highly unethical and unscrupulous behavior which does not bring honor to the office he holds". But she acknowledged the party's officeholders have a range of views on how to proceed.

Democrats running to succeed President Trump are split over whether Congress should impeach him.

"We all firmly agree that we should proceed down a path of finding the truth", Pelosi wrote. "We don't have to go to articles of impeachment to obtain the facts, the presentation of facts", Pelosi said. Pelosi, calling from New York City, spoke briefly. Bernie Sanders, a front-runner in the crowded Democratic field who has pushed much of his party to the left in recent years, was asked to defend his decision to embrace democratic socialism. That made her the second candidate to do so after Senator Elizabeth Warren called for impeachment proceedings last week.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday rejected the suggestion that White House aides ignore his commands when they consider them out of line with the norms of the presidency. Then, she said, it has become clear that the only reason Trump has not been indicted is because of the office he now holds.

The report also found that Trump's campaign took advantage of the impact on Clinton, but did not deliberately reach out to collude with the Russians. Nadler has summoned Mueller to testify next month, though no date has been set.

For his part, President Trump says he is not anxious about impeachment.
